Sounds good. I am going to say this is done then. I looked and the bzr repository does indeed look like a directory per branch and that branch directory did indeed seem empty except for the .bzr file. Not knowing any better and simply taking your word for it I have removed that directory from the repository.

If that doesn't handle this problem then let me know. Actually either way I welcome feedback on whether simply removing that (mostly) empty directory is the right way to deal with this. :-)

Thanks for looking into this.

That branch was created with the wrong name, it should have been the Debian package name. I found that I could now delete the branch using the following command (which didn't work for me iirc when I opened the support request).

bzr rmbranch bzr+ssh://

That just leaves the empty folder. It probably contains a .bzr folder with some artifacts on disk. But the whole linux-doc-hr folder can be deleted. That will get rid of any doubt about where our code for this package is and about which packages we update for our ucclia release.

Hi. The simple answer is no there hasn't. Because there hasn't been any volunteers who are mothering over bzr repositories. I personally don't know very much about bzr at all.

Normally we are archive curators. Which means we never delete anything because that is the safe thing to do. However if the branch is simply a copy of what existed at that time then there isn't any reason to preserve it since the original still exists. Therefore I am sympathetic. If you were to tutor me through the process I would be happy to perform the action. Is that branch just a copy? What needs to be done to delete it? I see two commits by Dennis Worthem on it.

Please delete Bazaar branch bzr:// It was created by mistake (doc-linux-hr is the right one).
